    I have wanted to see this idea since pC2. I even have my own name for it: the Dummy Plug system (yes I like NGE)

    Is there a way to set a max ping limit on the server? especially with the rating system this would be nice to have, since i dont wanna manually kick everyone who has a high ping.

    I'll see if I can dig an old addon from the pC forums. I remember there being something about pings and kicks xD

    i think this is it, tried to set max ping limit, but could not see it added in server.cfg, so it must work differently.

    No. Literally a LUA addon. I found the 2 addons and cobbled them together but I am not getting the intended result yet.

    Quick question...

    Everything seems good on my server, aside from when going from quali to the grid, there's no delay. Soon as the session timer runs out the next thing your on the grid with the lights counting down to green.

    Free practise is fine and shows 2 mins before the end...i take it I'm missing a particular flag in the json?

    The WAIT_FOR_RACE_READY_INPUT flag will give the countdown/ready-up phase

    Hey, how to control required server rating and all rating related stuff? There is nothing in readme.txt or UserGuide.pdf.

    Yes, of course.
    The solution is in the api flag :
    {
    "value" : 1048576,
    "name" : "TIMED_RACE"
    },

    Reasonably tech-savvy newbie-to-dedicated-servers here.

    Excited by the possibilities of running a DS now that I am switching more of my time over to AMS2. Keen to understand some of the fundamentals and, in particular, what the current (and known future) capabilities are around custom AI?

    Is the Dedicated Server effectively the 'host'? If so, is it possible to use a DS to distribute custom AI to all players who join a server? I know that an obvious challenge of custom AI in P2P sessions would be the host leaving (and therefore taking custom AI configuration with them). Seems like in a DS-scenario this could be worked around if the DS itself is persistent.

    If not possible today, is that something that is being considered at all?

    Hi,

    Well the default possibilities of the dedicated server are much the same as the options you have when creating a lobby from within the game, on dedicated server you can utilize a blacklist/whitelist and kick people, and with some lua scripting there are more things possible if you are into that, currently no options to distribute custom ai as far as im aware of

    It would be nice if it would save "last state", and also advance/restart session.
